Cycle Breaks are specialists in self-guided UK cycling holidays and bike tours in mainland Europe, including France, Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain. In England we organise cycle tours in our native East Anglia: Suffolk and Norfolk. Operating since 1991, we offer a high level of personal service and extensive experience. We love what we do, and it seems that our customers do as well.
Our gentle adventures take you to some of the most inspiring places in England and Europe. We’re sure you’ll unwind as you turn the pedals, but our aim is for you to relax before you even arrive.
We take care of everything, kitting you out with a good quality bike, providing detailed, well thought-out itineraries and maps, booking your accommodation and organising luggage transfers. And just in case your bike chooses not to go that extra mile, we provide an
en-route support service too.
Coast along in Suffolk perhaps. Wheel around Venice’s waterscapes or discover the treasures of Tuscany. Dream a
while by the Danube, or clock up a kilometre or two along the Châteaux of the Loire.
New to our portfolio for 2013 are some super scenic cycling tours in Mallorca and Catalonia in mainland Spain; country-hopping cycling holidays around Lake Constance; superb cycling in Italy's stunning Piedmont region, plus a special single centre bike holiday in Suffolk. Wherever you choose to push your pedals, our cycle tours are designed to let the beauty of the scenery and immediacy of the culture take your breath away, rather than the physical activity itself.
Ranging from just a few days to a whole week or two away, our UK and European tours are generally suitable for would-be cyclists of all ages and abilities and many make great activity getaways for families, extended families or groups of friends.
From advice on seamless trousers and gel saddles to arranging
well-located and relaxing accommodation, we make it our business to ensure that your holiday is comfortable all round.
Our route notes give plenty of tips for stops and sustenance along the way and there are suggestions for supper places too on breaks where dinner is not part of the package. What’s more, all of our tours are graded so you can select the one that’s right for you, or chat things over with us, if you prefer.
All our itineraries come with route options, long or short cuts. Part of the appeal is that the pace of your break and the distances you cover are your choice: you can be as active or relaxed as you wish, visit the sights you want to see and enjoy every minute of your holiday.
We hope you’ll take up our invitation to stretch your legs in the gentlest of ways. To take time to look up and breathe in. To cycle even a little and experience a lot. To enjoy your very own gentle adventure and feel better for it.
